We are leaving for Ruidoso, N.M. tomorrow morning so I am making these to take for our breakfast. If they muffins are 1/2 as good as the batter, it will be delecious.
1 orange peel grated
3/4 cup pecans (chopped fine)
1 stick butter (room temperature)
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup orange juice
Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add grated orange zest. Then add eggs and baking soda.
Add 1/2 of the flour and buttermilk. Mix well. Add other 1/2 . Fold in pecans. Bake 375 degrees for 20-25 min. Cool and brush the tops of muffins with fresh orange juice.
